jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
2013-04-27. Crisp dark golden amber body. Small off white head and lace. 3+ Aroma of modest hops, slightly odd English meets American hops. A not quite tangy quality to it. Flavour is similar, modest bitterness, odd character to the hops. Average plus palate. Okay, did not really care for it overall. On tap at Blackback Pub, Waterbury.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2005
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 The Lure:
Petite flowers and leaves grow under the fruity caramel maltiness. Subtle, but well positioned.

The Festivities:
Citrusy and floral hops are ably balanced with the caramel and papaya fruitiness. Carbonation cannot overcome the important caramel, which is appreciated in this well-crafted, malty bitter to accompany your scrumptious pizza.

A pair of overalls, and to work we go.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Pours a clear deep copper with a nice, frothy, off-white and well-lacing head. Aroma is lightly caramel malty with a nice hoppy presence. Body is full, crisp, and malty, but more bitter than most ESBs. Finishes somewhat clean with some stinging carbonation. An ok version of the style.

Verre de dégustation chez American Flatbread (Burlington, VT). Arôme: Odeur de fruits tropicaux et de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée. Saveur: Goût de noix rôtis et de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de brûlé en arrière goût. (Rating #587)

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 5, 2006
On draught at American Flatbread. Pours reddish with a thin pinkish head. Smells of bitter hops and malt. Taste lacks the fruitiness of a good ESB and is on the hoppy side.

AirForceHops (6301) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Draft Three Penny Tap Room. Pint glass displays a clear amber with low carbonation. Nose is really nothing but bread malt. Taste thankfully is better. Malt and hops are balanced just right. I find myself going to the ESB style more often after a strong night of drinking. Well, I.had a hard weekend of.drinking so.... This brew was nice and.east to drink on a Sunday afternoon. It’s decent if you want a mellow brew. Worth a try if you like the style.
